Synopsis:

“Ms. Grossman knows and understands what radiology nurses want and need to know to provide the best patient care and to be a member of a productive team.”

-Kathleen A. Gross, MSN, RN-BC, CRN

From the Foreword

The second edition of this pocket-sized resource for radiology nurses continues to demystify complex procedures by providing concise yet comprehensive information on the basics of radiology. As the complexity of healthcare grows, so too does imaging ability. Different modalities, technologies, and skills levels must all work in harmony to provide precision images. Radiology nurses must be proactive, patient-focused, and able to work with a diverse team of individuals to care for the widest range of patients.

Describing essential procedures and protocols in quick access style, Fast Facts for the Radiology Nurse, Second Edition covers over 50 different Interventional Radiology procedures. Woven throughout is an emphasis on interprofessional care and effective communication along with guidance on forming and maintaining a high-performing team. Abundant Clinical Pearls disseminate the hard-earned wisdom of expert radiology nurses. Extensively updated with the most current guidelines and protocols, the second edition presents four completely new chapters on Legal Issues Affecting Radiology, Strategies for Working with Difficult People, Safety and Quality in the Radiology Setting, and Emergency Management and Catastrophe Response.
